If you want a big phone there is only one answer - the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 was our favourite phablet of the year.
For handsets with big screens which fit somewhere between a large phone and small tablet, the phablet category is new for 2014 and looks to award the phone which makes the most of that extra screen space.
The Galaxy Note 3 takes the honours not just for its big HD screen, top-end performance and suite of Samsung’s software extras, but also for its S Pen. The stylus transforms the Note 3 from a big phone into a device which can help you create as much as consumer; no other handset does this quite so effectively or effortlessly.
Samsung takes home the phablet honours by beating the HTC One Max, Sony Xperia Z Ultra, Nokia Lumia 1520, LG G Flex, and the Acer Liquid S2.
